Beschreibung

In 1892 a stocky Danish immigrant named Magnus Jensen rode into south-central Montana. He liked what he saw and staked his future on the ranch he would carve out there. Today, the author and his wife, Emily, live on the ranch built by Jensen, Emily's grandfather. This illustrated book bears poetic witness to the myth and reality that are the West.

Portrait

Dan Aadland is a former teacher who ranches and breeds horses near Absarokee, Montana. He is the author of seven books, including "The Best of All Seasons: Fifty Years as a Montana Hunter" (Nebraska 2007) and "The Complete Trail Horse: Selecting, Training, and Enjoying Your Horse in the Backcountry."

Pressestimmen

"Running through this engaging book is Aadland's love of the Montana landscape and its inhabitants, and his implicit destruction of the politically correct myth that ranchers are ruthless exploiters of nature." Robert C. Steensma, Western American Literature
